    WA STATE: Health professions in our state depend on committees, boards and commissions to advise our secretary of health on the topics, issues and reports relevant to each profession. The Washington State Department of Health is actively recruiting for multiple positions on the Certified Counselors and Hypnotherapists Advisory Committee.

    Committees, boards and commissions are designed to give citizens a voice in their government and allow citizens to influence decisions that shape the quality of life for the residents of our state. Participation on a committee, board or commission is one of the most effective steps citizens can take in becoming an active voice in their government.

    To qualify, applicants:

    * Must be residents of Washington State

    * May not hold a leadership position in a professional association for their profession.

    * May not be employed by Washington State.

    * Public members must represent the general public and be unaffiliated directly or indirectly with the professions credentialed under chapter 18.19 RCW and 18.225 RCW—mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists and social workers.

    Committees and boards generally meet four times yearly and will meet virtually (during the pandemic) or at one of the department offices in either Tumwater or Kent. Members are paid $50 per day and are reimbursed for travel expenses and meals.
